room...stay out of the sun...check on relatives and neighbors...
and provide shade and fresh water for outdoor animals.

Take extra precautions...if you work or spend time outside.  When
possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work...the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.   Heat stroke
is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
